LASER HAIR REMOVAL:
The lasers on the market today come in all shapes and sizes. There are also different lasers that use different wavelengths of light. Some utilize a cooling device and some do not. All laser systems emit a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed by the hair. The laser energy is then transformed into heat that can disable the follicle. Today individuals with white or dark/tan skin can utilize lasers to remove their unwanted hair with positive results. Lasers that utilize a cooling device will help protect the skin by cooling the upper layers providing the patient with increased comfort. This cooling selectivity helps to protect the skin while effectively treating the unwanted hair
Electrolysis is the only permanent method of hair removal. Each individual hair is treated by inserting a tiny surgical probe into the hair follicle and directing a split second impulse of energy down to the hair root. Electrolysis is only as good as the technician though. Also, electrolysis is a series of treatments. It is not one treatment and the hair is gone forever. This means that it is a weakening process. After an electrolysis treatment the hair should grow back thinner and finer. It also depends how thick or thin the unwanted hair is. For instance, someone who has been waxing or tweezing will need more treatments than someone who has not tampered with the area.
